….that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:19-20 NIV
When we read this scripture, we notice a few really awesome things. Reconciliation is a restoration within us and God.
An ambassador is someone who represents. Not only do we represent Jesus and the salvation of his people, but we are ambassadors of faith. Because of this, we are called to let our faith be known in the way we walk.
If we act contrary to scriptures, we are not being ambassadors of our faith. We are being ambassadors of the flesh. In that we lose our reconciliation with God.
The good news is we can be reconciled with God again. God is a loving God and he loves those that follows him. When Jesus died on the cross, his judgment for us was diverted.
If you are going through struggles in your life, God is calling you to reconciliation with him. He has chosen. We are called. Amen.
